Miriam Laussegger

Miriam Laussegger (born 1980) completed her diploma studies in textual sculpture under Heimo Zobernig at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, and works with installations, sculpture, video, net art and photography.
In the photo series “ABBRUCH – ein architektonischer Kontaktabzug” (DEMOLITION – an architectural contact sheet), the artist turns her attention to what remains of a demolished building – in other words – stairways, remnants of tiles and painted walls. In this way, a contact sheet of the architectural structure is made visible through the demolition of a house.
Another project from her versatile range of work deals with terms and phrases deriving from the context of art. Together with artist Eva Beierheimer, this led to the net art project www.worte.at. Here, art texts with relevant specialised vocabulary are computer generated by means of a text generator. Building on this, Miriam Laussegger and Eva Beierheimer have developed further works in the form of videos, sculptures, prints and installations.
